George Coleman: My Horns of Plenty This reissue of George Coleman’s recording My Horns of Plenty is a real treat for those wanting to hear the sheer talent of a lesser known saxophonist. Coleman enjoyed his greatest exposure when Miles Davis, who had a knack for surrounding himself with great musicians, featured him early on in his great '60s quintet. But since then, Coleman's musicianship has not waned. The skill and depth of Coleman's playing is clearly evident on this 1991 reissue. Equally adept on soprano, alto, and tenor saxophone, Coleman possesses a smooth and dynamic presence. With speed and poise he shines on the Billy Strayhorn composition “Lush Life”. His tenor is as silky as butter on the classic “My Romance” and his own compositions give ample room for band members to show their skills on “You Mean So Much To Me.” With great tunes, an equally talented band, and an outstanding voice, it's nice to discover a cornucopia of good music on Mr. Coleman’s My Horns of Plenty.
